Simon Tozer is influenced by popular art and children’s illustration. He tries to illustrate human dreams, fears and frailties, often through the representation of animals but also through machines, cars and ships.
Simon finds that making pictures is rarely straightforward. More it is a process of reaching for thoughts and feelings that sit at the back of the mind.
Most of his pictures are created as screen prints. Like other non-digital print techniques, Simon finds that the process encourages images that are graphic and quite simple in form.
He said; “In screen printing each picture is created in layers as a series of separate drawings onto film. The layers are then transferred onto the screen using a chemical process, which is then hand printed as a stencil one colour at a time.”
